Parenting Programs

Becoming a parent is, perhaps, one of the greatest challenges we take on as human beings, and sometimes we need a little extra help. That’s why the experts here at Genesis Therapy Center offer a range of services for parents and families.

Family Therapy

When it comes to family therapy, we believe in using a Family Systems-based approach to help parents reconnect with their children and adolescents. This means that we work with the family as a whole, because we believe that the relationships we have with family members have a profound effect on who we are as people.

The goal of a Family Systems style of therapy is to set up a familial hierarchy that has parents in charge while the whole family functions more closely as a unit. Sometimes this means pushing for more interactivity between family members, but other times it means encouraging boundaries and individual pursuits.


Our parenting seminars are training sessions that are based on ideas from Systematic Training for Effective Parenting (STEP) and Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy (DDP). They are geared toward parents who want to better understand their children, reduce their yelling and improve the parent-child relationship.
